The boy is a girl

I’m not the one who shy away from gender-mix and matches and just absolutely love Saint Lauren’s Spring 2013 campaign for men. These beautiful shots are photographed by Hedi Slimane himself, and modelled by Dutch beauty Saskia de Brauw, in parhaps what Slimane does the best, tailored skinny for men!

A quilted set

November so far (luckily!) has not been too chilly in London, with temperatures around 10 degrees heavy winter gear and hats have hardly been needed, yeah! We all know that can change in the matter of seconds so I’ve been careful to enjoy lighter outfits whenever I could.

As you may have picked up I’m all in for comfortable dressing these days, and when I came across these 2 super soft quilted pieces with elastic waistline (hurra!) I got it on the spot. These are new favourites that I will wear as a one piece by just changing accessories and shoes, or worn as separates.
Now, I’m gonna snuggle up in the sofa in another cosy outfit, take a deep breath and wait for my homemade cantarella pie to finish in the oven, wishing you all a fabulous weekend wherever you are!

Grace – A Memoir

Guess if I turned a little starstruck yesterday when Grace Coddington signed my latest book addition, her autobiography “A Memoir” at Browns Fashion. She’s such a talented graceful beautiful woman that I have my deepest respect for and I cannot wait to dig into this gorgeous book during my Christmas-days-off.

Yesterday

I’ve had a slightly hectic week, hence the-not-so-frequent posts, but just one more busy day and I hope to spend a little more time with my blog. If you’re interested you know you can always find me on Instagram on my profile @hedvigso.

Anyway, Yesterday eve I wore a Tod’s Signature bag and my new beautiful Valentino kittens, and I swear I never had so many compliments regarding my shoes ever before. Well now, when I look like I’ve swallowed a football I move focus to fabulous accessories and it works miraculously to some extend!

On my wrists

Dangling on my wrist a lot lately are these friendship bracelets in silver and rose gold by Monica Vinader that I’ve got engraved to make each one of them more personal. I’ve already gifted friends with these bracelets which all turned successful, just a little tip if you’ve got no idea what to give your good friend who might already have “everything” for Christmas.

Fancy a Slimane?

Well I do, and wouldn’t have minded having this beauty in my arms when I head for the Drapers Awards tonight. If you haven’t already seen the accessories to go with Saint Laurent Paris’s SS13 sharp-rockn’roll-Californian-wiiiiide-brimmed-hat silhouettes, then Hedi Slimane’s first line of  accessories for Saint Laurent is now ready for pre-order here. This beauty is yours for £735.

Oh Paris

Woop woop, I’m back in London after a few cosy days in Paris where I except from enjoying my favourite Laotian food and spending time with family and friends, soaked up the Christmassy feeling and installations at the department stores, tried on a trillion Valentino shoes, and ended up with this beautiful red carrier bag that made my eyes all teary, a true Valentino-princess-moment that I hope will last a looong time.

More prints!

Right now I’m so feeling for prints like tartar, stripes and houndstooth, and promising budget favourites are this semi-transparent tartar shirt and stripey blouse in Zara’s December lookbook.

Sparkle

My outfits these days are pretty limited to jeans, shirts and knits when on the run, but at least to vary a little I’ve been playing around with accessories and jewellery, like these new gold pleated earrings, a little golden bling bling on a regular weekday sometimes does it for me.

On another note, right now it’s early Sunday morning and I’m an unusual early bird as I’m about to catch my train to beautiful Paris for a few days. Enjoy your Sunday folks and see you in Paris!

Le blazer

Ok, after searching high and low for more price-worthy alternatives to this drop dead beauty of an oversized classic timeless blazer, I’m almost about to give up, Balmain you win or perhaps any of you got any suggestions? With or without my baby bump I would have worn this jacket on the shoulders over a simple knee-length spaghetti-stropped dress and something sparkling in the coming festive season……

Francoise Hardy

Every year I get this idea to chop a fringe, and this year like every other year, it’s not very likely to happen due to my unruly curls. However if I had straight hair like 60′s icon and beauty Francoise Hardy, the chop would have been done ages ago, her cut is just too cool for school and will remain my hair-inspo-dream for 2012 that never happened.

Happy Friday to all of you superstars!

Stay safe

A few days ago I had a bad experience in one my beloved areas of London. Having someone suddenly jumping on you from behind grabbing what they can may scare anyone to bits, but my initial reaction was anger(!), I got a hit in with my umbrella and ran after the creep who jumped into a nearby building. After getting away with nothing more than my phone, and hopefully problems with the police, I hope he thought it was worth it. Now in the aftermath I’m relieved it ended there, it’s insane how far some are willing to go, but lesson learned is that it could happen to anyone when you least expect it, so stay safe, tuck your phone away and grab your beloved handbag a little harder!

Meet Kate!

This morning I enjoyed looking through my new beautiful Kate book while sipping to a cup of ginger-mint-tea with fennel and lemon, a new obsession of mine(!), the tea I mean.
If you already are the owner of the book (if not you’ll find it here), and perhaps would like to meet Kate in person, then you can bring it with you tomorrow the 15′th (between 5pm and 7pm), to Marc Jacob’s Bookmarc store in Mayfair and have it signed. If you’re not queueing up for yourself it would sure make a great Christmas gift to a fashion loving friend…….

Chloe’s Elsie

Todays “little” Tuesday wish is this Elsie bag by Chloe that has long time been hiding in the back of my mind, loving both these beautiful bags with golden hardware that I would wear with leather and denim right away. If interested you’ll find the houndstooth tweed version here (£1065) and the beaded leather version here (£1872).

Tartan

Woop woop, Happy Monday Morning and I hope you’ve all had a fab weekend!
On my side my bump is growing a lot these days, and though I know it will certainly get bigger the remaining 3 months I already feel like I’ve swallowed a basket ball, where will this end? Those silhouettes, ala Proenza Schouler, I pictured I would wear this fall feel a million miles away, as fitted just feels the best for now, and the skirts in my wardrobe unluckily don’t come with elastic waistlines (more elastic waistlines to the people please!).

Anyway, here’s what I wore a few days back, my favourite new jeans by J Brand, wool jacket by Hofmann, boots Isabel Marant, wool scarf Ralph Lauren, bag by Proenza and bracelets by Monica Vinader and Cooee.
